Dodge had it coming when they turned out this beaut. Thirsty off the line, you’ll be doing well to get 11 mpg out of this hog. That said, it was also one of the quickest trucks Consumer Reports ever tested. Run your truck into the ground by fixing these common problems yourself.
Are A/C issues expensive to fix?
Probably not. Most A/C issues are fixed quickly with a refrigerant recharge but some involve more time-consuming repair or replacement work.
The average cost for an AC recharge is between $123 and $300.
The average cost for more in-depth repair and replacements is $488 but can raise to over $3,000 for more extensive issues.
